  1. Laser Activated Device Countermeasure

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: A07111

    Detection and countermeasure of Laser Activated Devices (LADS) in today’s battlefield is of great importance. Current optics detection technology can be extended to the LADS detection mission, but often suffer from several operational challenges. Areté Associates approach can provide rapid optics detection over a wide field of regard (FOR).

  2. Flight Control Technology for Tightly Controlled Hard Target Impact

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: AF081047

    This project develops an innovative, enabling technology for precision attitude control of guided munitions. An imaging sensor system is used to precisely measure airframe attitude relative to the velocity vector, eliminating the time dependent heading angle inaccuracies common to all GPS/INS based attitude measurements. During the downward flight of a guided munition, a body-fixed, boresighted ...

  3. Detection of Human Targets in Open Water

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: N/A

    Current airborne search techniques rely on an operator to look out a window with binoculars or at a video monitor connected to a turreted camera system. Disparities in crew training, experience, qualification, and attentiveness (as well as fatigue) lead to an undesirable variability in manual EO/IR detection results. To reduce the demands placed on the search crew and increase the likelihood of de ...

  4. Long-Range Eyesafe Ladar Rangefinder for the Airborne Laser's Active Ranging System

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: MDA05013

    To counter emerging threats of theater ballistic missiles the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has sponsored the development of the Airborne Laser Weapons System (ABLWS). For the ABLWS to defeat multiple targets over the theater of operation it must be capable of accurately tracking multiple targets simultaneously. The Active Ranging System (ARS) plays a crucial role in achieving this capability by ...

  5. Sea Surface Slope and Elevation Statistics To Support Radar Performance Modeling

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: N06002

    Passive polarimetry will be used in an innovative fashion to extract the ocean surface slopes. The Phase II program will consist of the construction of a state-of-the art imaging polarimetry sensor system, the further development and refinement of the algorithms for extracting the slope values from the polarimetry measurements, and an engineering checkout experiment to test the instruments and pro ...

  6. Development of a Multi-spectral and Polarimetric Technique for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: N06013

    Passive electro-optical (EO) imaging of submerged submarines has been the subject of research for almost three decades. Previous efforts, which have focused on the use of passive, multi-spectral imaging (MSI) methods to detect, classify, and localize submerged submarines, have been hampered by scene clutter and false alarms due to sea foam. Including polarization will enhance the multi-spectral ...

  7. Frequency-Stable Optically Pumped Semiconductor Lasers

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: N/A

    Technology research and development in such areas as next-generation atomic clocks, quantum information processing with trapped ions, and atomic spectroscopy is impeded by the lack of commercially available laser sources that meet the required specifications of wavelength tuning range, output power, frequency-stability and reliability. Arete Associates is developing frequency-stable Optically Pump ...

  8. System for Multi-Ship Brown-Out Helicopter Landings

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: N08152

    Areté Associates (Areté) proposes to develop advanced algorithms for landing area characterization from LADAR data for the purpose of assisting helicopter landing during brownout. Our algorithms will discriminate ground from non-ground objects; remove outlier data; identify flat areas/pits/trenches; and characterize level, uncluttered areas suitable for a helicopter landing zone. These process ...

  9. Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) Algorithm for Submarine Periscope Systems

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: N08044

    Areté proposes to create the software application PERICLES (PERIscope CLassification of Ships) capable of automatically recognizing and classifying marine targets viewed in submarine imaging systems.

  10. Non-Mechanical LADAR for Improving The Helicopter Pilot’s Situational Awareness in Reduced Visual Cue Environments

    SBC: ARETE ASSOCIATES            Topic: N08138

    One of the major technical challenges of modern military and commercial rotary wing aviation is effective instrument aided navigation in brownout or whiteout conditions that can occur during landing or maneuvering in sandy, dusty, snowy or marine environments. Helicopter prop-wash churns up dense clouds of airborne particles that impede visibility. These conditions can escalate into crashing desce ...
